I have this problem with a couple of friends and it is never something urgent, it is like they think whatever they want is more important than whatever it is

I hear ya.

But Hearto has been here for years, and your comment about how she could improve her relationship with her son... is odd. Considering the history, and your being a new poster. Have you posted here under another name? Just curious.

And I didn't get the impression from your first post, about not answering all day long, to mean you were helping kids with homework or having sex. Do you work from home?

Not everyone that doesn't answer the phone is because they're busy with more important stuff. Some like the control, imo.

<< Why not just turn off the ringer on your phone if you are not interested in talking? >>

Great idea.

We were having the same problem with my MIL. She starts with the home phone, then dh's cell & then my cell. Sometimes she does leaves the very same message on all 3. I think dh told her to knock it off.

I can understand your frustration busdriversam, at least your mother in law leaves messages. This people I'm talking about won't leave a message but will call non-stop all day. I wonder why some people find doing that fine.

cat.alley - I didn't realize I had to be an old member in order to share my views but since I was the original poster I thought it made sense for me to respond to my own post? I am new

But in fact, Hearto's son didn't. and doesn't, have a problem with her calling. He'd left his phone somewhere. You're trying to make this into an issue with her personally, and it doesn't work.

Cat.alley - I don't understand why you keep trying to turn this into a fight but I will tell you the same thing I told her, let's just agree to disagree. I was trying to help her since she posted on my post but if you have an issue with that then fine. I suppose the two of you are friends and I think sometimes being a friend means telling your friend the truth and not just what they want to hear. Have a nice day.

Agreeing to disagree doesn't then include a put down, so I don't.

You have a nice day, too.
